Extensive wine list – We had a party of 12 there for "business" and all in all, most people were satisfied. The mushrooms and bruchette as an appitizer were pretty tasty. I had the Elk for dinner which the waiter reccomended. It was OK. The lady next to me had the veal chop and said it was very dry. The chopped salad was unreal. I would go back just for that. The wine list was huge and the staff was helpful in choosing a couple of different options.
Overall the food was good but probably not worth the price they charge for it.
poor choice – Took my wife for her birthday requested a candle for her cake never got it. Seats too high, and uncomfortable, no bread served with meal water is served straight from the tap. Very expensive. Food was mediocre at best servings very small
DO NOT EAT HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT! – The food was terrible, everything was overpriced. Even if the food was prepared right it still would be horrible. The 10once bottle of soda were 2 dollars each. If you wanted the bread it cost 5 dollars. I do not reccomended it to anybody. Everything about this place was so bad.
We never have written a review that's how bad it was!
get over the name.. go, go GO NOW! – This is one of the finest dining experiences EVER. The service was professional, attentive and knew what they were doing. Trust your waiter to put together an outstanding dinner for you and your guests. I have eaten on 5 continents,over more than 30 years of travel and this was in the top 3 or 4 EVER, anywhere. can't wait to get back to scottsdale again
Overrated – Find it funny that Nikki Buchanan keeps recommending this place. Is she really a good food critic? The food is nothing but mediocore (and Ive given this place more than one chance). The wine list is purposefully confusing and ridiculously expensive. The wait staff is ready to upsell everything from a piece of bread. I would never recommend this tourist trap!
Cow-bore Ciao – There was nothing inviting about this restaurant. The decor is dark but not romantic. The music did not compliment the Italian/Cowboy theme. Worst of all, the food was marginal at best. Two soups, one appetizer, and one meal were not served hot. The flavor of everything was bland, and nothing was memorable. We expected much more, based on reviews we'd read, but then maybe we should have been suspicious of a restaurant that prints its reviews right in their menu. Like everything else about this restaurant, it just seemed like it was trying too hard and not succeeding.
Not worth it – Despite it's good rating, our group of 4 found it a poor experience. The service was horrible, a 3+ hour dinner. It took over 45 minutes from the time we were done with the appetizer and the plates taken until the entree was served. No explanation. The food itself ranged from very good to bad, depending on the entree. It is rated as $21 to 30 for a 3 course meal. That is impossible. For 4 people it was $210 before tip. That was 4 well drinks, 2 shared appetizers, 2 shared desserts, 4 mid-priced entrees and a $22 bottle of wine. We would not go back. Finally, the wine list is so extensive and so full of words that it is literally impossible to review it and select a wine. All it is is a list that says "Look at me, I'm huge", not something usable.
Great Place – THis lace is great, I took my girlfriend here for our 1 yr. anniverasy. The food was wonderfull and the wait staff was excellent. The waitress picked up some of our bill due to the fact that my girlfriend couldn't have any of the desserts, all of them had nuts which she is alergic to. Over all great place to go!
Good spot – Great, inventive food. Quality service and pleasant decor. Tasty bread pudding for desert. Will definitely return.
